The Extreme Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) Project, O. Tesileanu and N. V. Zamfir, ‘Horia Hulubei’ National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering (IFIN-HH), Bucharest-Magurele, Romania − The Extreme Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics facility (ELI-NP) to be constructed in Bucharest-Magurele will be one of the three pillars of ELI and will consist of two components: a very high power (2x10PW) laser beam and  a very intense (1013 γ/s), brilliant γ beam, 0.1% bandwidth, with energy up to 19 MeV. ELI-NP will allow either combined experiments between the high-power laser and the γ beam or stand-alone experiments.  This facility will create a new European laboratory with a broad range of science covering frontier fundamental physics, new nuclear physics and astrophysics as well as applications.


A review of the Project and the Status of its implementation will be presented.
